This is an excellent NT property with extensive walks & attractive pond. Lovely Stables cafe with cream teas, just right for such a sunny day.

The walls are full of portraits - many by leading artists such as large ones of James II and his wife - but especially the earliest and original portrait of William Shakespear. Throughout the house there are harpsichords and pianos from 1622 onwards, many owned or played by leading composers. The house was built be Admiral Boscawen - a hero of the Royal Naval victories over France.

There are also 400 acres of lovely parkland to explore - rides for children on ponies up to age 10, and an adventure wood for children.

This is a lovely place for a day out with the kids. They had space hoppers dotted around the grounds which all the kids seemed to enjoy very much.
A company called “Pony Magic” were offering pony rides for the little ones. Another great idea.
The queue for the cafe was very long at lunchtime, and slow. A shame really since they had a good selection of food. Sandwiches, cakes, biscuits, afternoon tea, soup.
All in all, we had a wonderful time.

Had been numerous times for outdoor plays but went in to house for first time last week. Elegant and beautiful, fascinating pianos and instruments, a couple of Titians hiding amongst the masterpieces! Atmospheric with knowledgable staff and they have piano recitals occasionally that its well to book for as they are very popular and sell out quickly. Good cafe and gift shop. Decent parking. Lovely!
